Bought this book for an Urban Studies class I took about... 5 years ago? It's really thick and I never needed to read the whole thing for class, but I've started at the beginning and I'm contemplating the different factors that drew humans together in cities. Origins of civilizations and religions are interesting to think about while we've been listening to Christopher Hitchens's "God is not Great".
